How Willett
Wooed the Widow
By SAMUEL MINTURN PECK
■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■
(Copyright, by J. B. Lipplncott Co.)
"Well, Bob, I have settled it," said
Frank Wiilett, aged 40, bursting into
the room of his friend, Robert Hall.
Dropping Into a chair, he wiped his
moist brow and breathed rapidly.
"Settled what?" asked Hall, laying
down his pen and offering a cigar.
"Why, I have proposed to her."
"Proposed to whom?"
"To Mrs. Langston. Hang it, man,
have you forgotten my long consulta
tion with you last Friday?" Willett
bit off the end of his cigar and struck
a match viciously. "I presume that
you have not only forgotten the occa
sion, but that the advice you gave me
has also escaped you."
"Advice in regard to what? You
are always asking advice about some
thing and then following your own
head."
"Don't you recall my telling you
that I was in love —in love with Mrs.
Langston, the loveliest woman that
breathes, and that Jim Parsons was as
hard hit as I, and while I believed I
was ahead in the race I was afraid of
Jim because he had such a slick
tongue?"
"Oh, yes, and I said that you would
best not let any grass grow under
your feet, because a woman who had
been married three times already
would not stand any dilly-dallying—
if you did not speak quickly that she
would marry Jim Just from force of
habit."
"Precisely, but that wasn't all."
"What else did I say? You have
interrupted me in the middle of a let
ter to my fiancee, and my thoughts
are a bit scattered."
"Well, to help you collect them, I
told you I had made up my mind to
propose at once, and as I had never
been in love before, and consequently
had never made a proposal, I wanted
your advice in regard to the best way
of doing It. I naturally supposed that
a man who had been refused by a
dozen women and had finally succeed
ed in becoming eugaged to the thir
teenth would have acres of good
counsel to give me."
"And didn't I? It seems to me I
told you to follow the InspiraUon of
the moment."
"So you did, but it appeared to me
hardly safe to leave such an import
ant matter entirely to chance. In
case the inspiration failed to inspire
I wanted something to fall back upon."
"Yes, and I called you a fool, and
told you a dozen ways at least of put
ting the question."
"Good. I am glad to see that your
brain is growing clear and your mem
ory coming back to you. As I was not
fluent of speech like that fop Parsons,
you suggested that I make the pro
posal by letter."
"And the plan did not please you?"
"Certainly not, and for two reasons.
First, I thought it was cowardly, and
second, I could not bear the suspense
of waiting for a reply."
"Then I said you might take the
fascinating widow boat riding, upset
the boat, swim ashore with her, and
claim the life you had saved."
"And you knew I couldn't swim!"
"I knew that nothing I could pos
sibly suggest would meet your appro
bation. But since you have proposed,
and the matter is settled, great Scott!
man, what is the use of going over
our last interview?"
"Merely to show you by contrast
how much better was the plan I
adopted after leaving you. By George!
it was a great performance," said Wil
lett, smoking away with reminiscent
complaisance.
"To begin at the beginning, a man
can't very well propose till he sees
the woman alone, and for six weeks I
have never called on Mrs. Langston
that I didn't find Parsons there, or
that he didn't arrive a few minutes
after I did. So I decided to go to the
widow's, and if I did not find him to
wait till he came and then sit him
out; for it would be most embarrass
ing to have him drop in in the mid
dle of the business and force me to
stop and pick up the threads on an
other occasion. Love is something
like champagne. When the cork Is
once removed it becomes stale.
"Accordingly, last Sunday evening
I went to see Mrs. Langston, and sure
enough I had not been there five min
utes when in marched Parsons In
grand toilet bringing a dozen Ameri
can Beauty roses. Mrs. Langston
greeted him just as cordially as she
had greeted me, although he is such
an idiot, and, of course, I had to be
courteous, too. She seemed as pleased
to receive Parsons' flowers as the bon
bons I had brought. That Is a way
she has. I was sure it did not mean
anything. But it did irritate me, after
she had placed Parsons' roses in a
lovely vase, to have her open my box
of sweets and hand them to the fel
low. Yet the most exasperating thing
of all was to watch Parsons devouring
my bon-bons and gazing complacently
at his rosea. It made me wild to
think that before the evening was
over there would not be a caramel
left, judging from the pace Parsons
had set himself, while to-morrow his
roses would be as fresh as ever, and
by their color and fragrance remind
ing Mrs. Langston every moment of
the giver.
"Mrs. Langston Is a wonderful
woman! Most women would have
found It an embarrassing task to en
tertain at the same time two men as
antipathetic as Parsons and I. But
from her manner one would have sup
posed that she thought Parsons and I
were loving chums. By Jove! Hall,
her wit fairly scintillated. I have
never known her so brilliant. Parsons
seemed to enjoy the evening immense
ly, and did his share of the talking,
and I—l talked, too, as well as I
could. I had to, or appear at a dis
advantage, but I assure you it was the
most terrible strain of my life. To
be mirthful at Mrs. Langston's sallies
was not so hard; it was smiling at
Parson's stupid jokes that made my
face ache. »
"Well, sir, the widow kept the con
versational ball brilliantly rolling for an
hour and a half. Then as it ap
proached 11 o'clock she grew suddenly
quiet. There wu nothing rude about
| It, but It wag the clearest tip to take
hla leave that a man ever received;
but would you believe it. Hall, that
blockhead of a Parsons never took tbe
hint, even though It was re-enforced
• by a glance I gave my watch. He re
mained full 15 minutes longer, and
' when, to my great relief, be finally
' rose, Mrs. Langstou saw him to tbe
outer door as if to be sure of bis de
parture. Even then tbe fellow, in
spite of all Mrs. Langston's efforts to
speed tbe parting guest, kept her In
the draughty doorway quite a quarter
of an hour.
"'I shall remain only five minutes,
Mrs. Langaton,' I said when she at
last came back Into tbe room. As I
spoke I met her weary glance with a
sympathetic look, and sat down by her
on tbe sofa.
"My hour had arrived, and I assure
you I appreciated tbe fact The house
was deadly still, tbe noise on the
street had lulled, and tbe footsteps of
tbe Infrequent passersby only punc
tuated tbe silence. Tbe situation was
enough to rattle any man, but, Hall,
old boy, I kept my bead.
" 'Mrs. Langaton,' said I, solemnly,
T believe that a great crisis has ar
rived in my life, and I want your kind
counsel and guidance.'
"She gave me a quick look. I had
aroused her curiosity.
"'I am not quite sure, Mrs. Langs
ton,' I continued, not too rapidly, 'but
I suspect that I am in love —in love
for the first time, and wish your opin
ion of my case.'
"'How Interesting, Mr. Willett!
Tell me your symptoms.'
"She spoke in a low, kind voice, her
attitude was one of alert sympathy,
and a pleasant twinkle in her black
eyes seemed to say 'Don't be down
hearted.' Noting the fact, I took
courage and went on:
" 'Mrs. Langston, what is love?'
"'Love? Why, love Is —love is—'
She hesitated a moment. 'What a
strange question!'
'The widow was a bit confused.
"To my mind,' I said, 'love Is the
most mysterious of emotions, and the
most varied in its manifestations.'
" 'Quite true, Mr. Willett, and yet
there are certain unfailing signs that
enable most lovers to read their
hearts.'
'The widow was trying to regain
the conversational reins, and I let her
think that she had succeeded in doing
so, for all was now moving better than
I had hoped. I drew a little nearer to
her on the sofa.
"Tell me some of those Infallible
signs,' and I gave her a fetching
glance.
"A short pause ensued, during which
I appeared anxiously expectant.
" 'Well, Mr. Willett, If one is falling
in love for the first time, a premoni
tory uneasiness, in most cases, is ex
perienced such as one has never felt
before; at the same time the mind
begins to dwell constantly upon one
person, and the haunting vision can
not be banished from the fancy by
any effort whatever—or at least one is
convinced that it cannot be banished,
so the result is the same—it stays.'
" 'Go on, Mrs. Langston,' said I,
drawing still nearer.
"By consummate finesse I made tbe
beautiful creature describe her con
ception of the feelings of her Ideal
lover. The clock of my fate had
struck. It was time for the grand
coup, and, throwing all tbe eloquence
of tenderness into my tones, I ex
claimed:
"'Mrs. Langston, you have read my
heart like a sibyl. That is just the
way I feel for you!'"
"By George! Willett, let me con
gratulate you on your success. You
deserve all your happiness, for you
managed the affair like a Talleyrand,"
said Hall, extending his hand. "But
tell me, did the widow surrender with
a whispered 'yes,' or did the tradition
al silence give consent?"
"Neither. She Just looked at me
with that bewitching twinkle in her :
eye and said:
"'lndeed, Mr. Willett, I am very
sorry, for that is fust the way I feel
for Mr. Parsons.'"
" Great Scott! man, but I thought ,
you said it was all settled!" exclaimed
Hall, aghast.
"Well, isn't it? It's settled that she
is going to marry Parsons. All the
same, I am proud of my proposal, for
I think it was a worlTfi art"

Whisky, But No Books.
The colonel of the th cavalry
was a martinet in all save his own
habits. On one occasion the regiment
was about to start on a long march
through Texas; and orders were is
sued that baggage should be reduced
to the minimum. Lieut. B had
just received from bis father a small
box of books 12 by 14 inches in meas
urement, and timidly asked the colonel
if he might not take It along. "Good '
gad! Sir! No, sir! Couldn't hear of
such a thing, sir!" "I'm very sorry,
colonel! It will be very dull out there,
without any reading. My father sent
me a barrel of whisky, too, but of
course I couldn't take that." "Good
Gad! Sir! Of course you can, sir!
Anything in reason, sir!" —San Fran

' Mr. Adair Gives Information of Lost
Saber.
Last Tuesday's Baltimore American
. contained the following information
. frqro Mr. J. McD. Adair with reference
1 to a saber mentioned in the report of
r Huater's raid through Lexington and
j published in last week's Gazette:
• The American Mr. James
1 F. Tjws, of Waverly, Md., has located
' a saber which he lost in the civil war
1 45 y»rs ago. In the Sunday American
of June _ i:t appeared an article by .Mr.
Hajjriutitled "With Hunter atLynch
[ burg." In the course oljt he described
I a skirmish at Lexington, Va., in which
i his hOrse was crippled so badly he had
r to leave him. enemy
froctvgetting his bridle he
' cut them to pieces, while his saber he
| hid in a hollow tree, where, he added,
| "it may be today."
Mr. Hays has jusi received a letter
, from Mr. J. McD. Adair of Lexington,
_ Va., who had read the account in The
American, telling him the sword had
, been found and where it is now. Mr.
• Hays was most agreeably surprised
' and will take steps to recover his old
weapon. The letter of Mr. Adair to
Mr. Hays follows:
Dear Sir:—Have just read your letter
t giving account of your march with
, General Hunter through the Valley.
- The sword you refer to here was found
by a Mr. Tomlin some ttme ago, and
can, l expect, be had now. I know a
gentleman who saw the sword and
knew all about how Mr. Tomlin found
;it in the tree. It has always been
| thought here that the sword belonged
. to a Colonel Tauk, who was killed in
the small engagement here, 1 was talk
ing to a lady recently who lived just
' where he was killed, gave them some
i water for him, and saw him taken up
on the brow of the hill and buried un

[ found. His body was afterwards re
moved.
I am not certain that I have the Col

Rayner's Language Lesson.
[From the Washington Times.]
Senator Rayner sprung some lan
guage lessons on the Senate while dis
cussing the pineapple schedule. He
was contending that the word revision
. simply meant "seeingagain," and that
it might mean upward or downward,
and when the Republican party prom
, ised nothing, theugh the people did not
understand this.
1 " 'Revise' means to see again," said
Senator Rayner. "It comes from the
I .ii! in word 're,' again, and 'videre,' to
see. Translated into French, it is 'au
revoir,' in German it is 'wiedersehn'
and translated into every dead and liv
ing language it has but one definition
and means but one thing, and the ex
pert who framed the Republican plat
form, being a lawyer of great distinc
tion, now occupying high place in the
Federal service, knew exactly what he
was doing when he put the word 're
vision' into the body of the instrument.
He meairt 'au revoir,' we will see you
> again, we will look you over, we will
vreiew you."

Staunton women know how the aches

fail make life a burden. Backache,
hip pains, headaches, dizzy spells, dis
tressing urinary troubles, all tell of
sick kidneys and warn you of the
stealthy approach of diabetes, dropsy
and Bright's disease. Doan's Kidney
Pills permanently cure all these dis

Mrs. Charles E. Danner, US F. Sa

ered severely from backache and kid
ney trouble. My back was very weak
and if I made a quick movement,sharp
pains darted through my loins. My
head ached intensely and I was also
subject to dizzy spells. I saw Doan's
Kidney Bills highly recommended for
troubles such as mine anil I procured
a box at Thomas Hogshead's drug

n FIGHTING THE MOSQUITO.
n (No. 9.) ;
:e
} j- The fly and the mosquito have con
( , Hiding claims as to the most obnox
ious pest of the summer. While the
former may claim to be a greater men
d are to health in that he carries the
lr germs of more disease, the latter has
n his special claims. The mosquito is
r very difficult to get out of the house
, when once he enters; he can cause a
j maximum of annoyance and incon
n venienee during the night hours; and
j he is the agent for spreading malaria,
_ which annually aflicts thousands in
c the State.
c There are some hundreds of forms of
1 mosquitoes. Some of them are per
fectly harmless so far as carrying dis- ,
, r ease is concerned. Other forms, not
j less unsuspicious looking, can spread j
g malaria broadcast. The layman can'
j ccarcely detect the anopheles, or ma
r laria mosquito, from the culex, or
-I harmless mosquito,
j The only sure method of ridding any
0 home of mosquitoes is to prevent their
breeding. Inasmuch as they seldom
, r fly more than a few hundred feet from '
n their breeding place, they can readily.
, lie killed off by destroying all breed- !
j ing places. Mosquitoes never hatch
j except in standing water, hence if all.
a standing water is drained off they will j
d be killed. j
j It sometimes happens that the
B breeding places of mosquitoes cannot
be altogether removed. In such a
n case, the pest-ridden man has another
.. resource, not less efllcacious. If he
tl will take a watering pot, fill it with
c kerocene oil, and pour the contents '
p lightly over the standing water, he
t . can prevent the breathing of young
lS mosquitoes and thereby can kill them
;. off. A quart of kerosene, lightly
syrayed, will effectually cover the sur
;. face of a small pond.
s It must be lemembered that running
;> water is not a breeding place for mos
quitoes and that they cannot hatch
until they have been in water for at
least ten days. But is equally true
that they can breed and hatch by
thousands in a very small amount of (
wider. They may hatch, it is true, in i
a stagnant pond, but they can hatch j
'" just as well and almost as numerously i
! " in a rain barrel or a flower-pot. A tin ;
c can left near the house and filled by J
n the rain may be the lurking place of )
1 the breeders. j
'' The only safe course is to examine ]
'" thoroughly the surroundings of your;«
house and destroy or oil every pool of |
standing water, great and small- j

' In the course of the debate a few days I
- ago Senator Gore said: "Nobody who.|
i believes in a duty on corn ought to be jj
- allowed to run at large outside of the '<i
- Senate." This witticism suggests an J
- inquiry into the agricultural schedule J
c of the tarifl'bill, and we find that the <
B farmers have not been forgotten, j
- Whether the remembrance will recon-'
. cile the tillers of the soil to some other j
1 things in the bill remains to be seen. I
1 Corn has been given a duty of 15 cents .
per bushel. Our corn imports in 1907 ,
were less than 10,000 bushels; the do-,
mestic product exceeded 2,500,000,000
bushels. It will be observed that corn i
in this country is not an "infant indus- j
try." If the 10-ceiil duty fails to ilispc-l
the horrible shadow that hangs over
American corn raisers in the form of j
s "foreign competition," it will at lsast;
s serve to assist tlie spellbinder iv eon-j
: i vincing our bucolic brother that the
■- tariff makers were not unmindful of;
' his interests.
c The Senate bill increases the duty on J
1 oats from 15 cents to 20 cents a bushel.
f Here again the domestic farmer will
i_ breathe a satisfying sign, for the ?.7,0U0
" bushels of imports in 1907 must have
been an awful menace against the 754,
--'" 000,000 bushels that he produced. The
" wheat duty was advanced from 25 to
•" ISO cents per bushel, an increase oi 20
i per cent. This will put a check to the
P threatened destruction of the business
¥ of wheat raising in this country, for in
0 1907 the foreign wheat raiser scut us
s the enormous amount of 19,000 bushels
r and we produced only 0:54,000,000 bush
-3 els.
= But the committee fairly overflowed
* with generosity in the matter of rye,
y on which the duty is increased 100 per
•" cent. The imports of rye in 1907 were
! " 157 bushels; we produced ;U,560,000
¥ bushels. The valueof buckwheat flour
imported in 1907 was !?68;!; of buckwheat
s itself the domestic production amount-
: > ed to more than 14,000,000 bushels.
Consequently the duty ou buckwheat
c ' flour was increased from 20 cents to 25
cents. What boots it that the sugar
which the cheerful housewife converts
into sirup for the glad breakfast table
sustains a tax of nearly two cents per
pound? Is not the buckwheat cake
protected also against foreign invasion?
